    Wonderful wedding venue

    We had our wedding and reception at this hotel and it was a great success. It's a beautiful old building, full of character, which is why we chose it. Katie was our wedding planner and she was great - really helpful and a pleasure to work with.

    Everybody loved the Lavinia Room which the wedding was held in. The wedding breakfast was held in the Conservatory and the room and tables looked absolutely beautiful. The food and service we received was excellent - we had lots of positive feedback from our guests on this. The portions were very generous and everyone felt very well looked after. All the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

    Most of guests had refurbished rooms and have said they were great. We had the bridal suite, which has yet to be refurbished, but is beautiful anyway, is huge and has stunning views. The rooms were spotless and the beds really comfortable. We want to say a big thank you to Katie, Paul and all the staff who helped make it a wonderful occasion.
